The Accessibility Compliance Enforcement aide is a volunteer who has committed to serve a minimum of four hours each week to assist the community and the Phoenix Police Department. Volunteers patrol the city of Phoenix, writing disabled parking citations. The mission of the ACE Program is to provide safe and accessible parking spaces for the disabled community through enforcement and education. Directed patrol is accomplished by responding to locations identified through the disabled parking violation hotline, 602-534-SPACE.

The City of Phoenix has created the Save Our Space Campaign to educate the public about the importance of saving disabled parking spaces for those people who really need them. Recently, the City of Phoenix has more than doubled the fine for illegal use of designated accessible parking spaces. The fine for this violation is $140.
The authority granted to accessibility compliance Volunteers is limited to non-law- enforcement functions. ACE volunteers will not engage in any activities that would place them in the role of a sworn law enforcement officer, and/or subject them to unreasonable and unnecessary hazards.

Motorist Assist Program
The Motorist Assist aide is a volunteer who has committed to serve a minimum of four hours each week to assist members of the community and the Phoenix Police Department. Serving as a uniformed civilian, the volunteer assists motorists who have encountered vehicular problems while using city streets. Assistance provided may include, but is not limited to, pushing vehicles; starting vehicles; opening vehicle doors; providing fuel, air, or water; assisting with changing a tire/s; arranging transportation; or other assistance reasonably required to aid the temporarily stranded motorist.

Volunteers also work closely with sworn police personnel and may be called upon to assist at vehicular accident scenes for traffic control or other duties. In addition, the volunteer may be requested to assist at special events. The philosophy of the Motorist Assist Program is service as opposed to enforcement. The authority granted to Motorist Assist aides is limited to non-law-enforcement functions. Motorist assist aides will not engage in any activities that would place them in the role of a sworn law enforcement officer, and/or subject them to unreasonable hazards.
